Our Aconcagua Rapid Ascent expedition team is making great progress! Pictured here is the team in basecamp (13,800′ / 4206m) this morning, just before they departed for C1 (16,568′ / 5050m)
From our basecamp, they will spend the next six days placing and stocking three camps and progressively moving up the mountain. During this time they utilize a method of “climbing high and sleeping low” to help acclimate. The highest camp is placed at 19,580′ / 5968m, and when they arrive there they will be ready for their summit bid. Stay tuned for more updates soon!
